PMID:  2174534     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An unusual case of rapid destruction of the entire bone structure of the foot in a 53-year-old woman is described. Although metastasis of breast cancer to the foot has been reported, it is uncommon. The unusual aggressive presentation of the metastasis in this case necessitated amputation for the control of pain.
